Pune: City-based urologist Dr Suresh Patankar has conducted a research on ‘Kidney Stone and Wound Healing’, which he will present at the American Urological Conference at Orlando City, USA on May 17, addressing about 10,000 urologists from the world over. The research is now in the final stages. It includes a study on treating small kidney stones, detecting them at the early stage and reducing chances of their recurrence.
Dr Patankar, who is also the founder of Ace Hospital and Research Centre, said the research is based on Ayurvedic concepts but has been being conducted using modern scientific methods. He believes this will change the outlook of modern practitioners towards Ayurveda.
He said kidney stone in urology, and wound healing in all surgical procedures are common problems and need to be studied in detail. “A lot of new surgical treatments are available to remove kidney stones with minimum damage and pain to the patient. These treatments are being carried out by our hospital for the last 30 years. However, we have observed that for small-sized stones no satisfactory treatment is available. We are working on that,” he said. All small stones eventually become large and require medical attention. Also, kidney stones are a recurring problem. Dr Patankar and his team are also researching methods of treating kidney stone in the early stages.
The second part of the research concentrates on wound healing. In certain surgeries, if the wound does not heal properly, it may lead to complications in the surgery or to its failure. Dr Patankar has found a regenerative formula, which promotes proper and faster wound healing with less scaring. This research has been accepted by the scientific community after clinical studies were conducted on human beings.
